Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 8396, 2023
Off-Street Vehicle Parking – Multiple Dwellings
Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 8396, 2023 is being considered by Council to modify off-street parking rates for multiple dwelling uses and enact transportation demand management requirements. This amendment bylaw is consistent with the City’s Official Community Plan, and in accordance with sections 464(2) and 467 of the Local Government Act, the Corporation of the City of New Westminster will not hold a public hearing on Bylaw 8396, 2023.
WHAT IS ZONING AMENDMENT BYLAW NO. 8396, 2023 ABOUT?
Bylaw No. 8396, 2023 proposes an amendment to the Zoning Bylaw to reduce off-street parking rates in an effort to better align the demand and supply of off-street parking. Bylaw No. 8396 2023 also seeks to remove existing provisions for reductions to the off-street parking rates and require end-of-trip and bicycle maintenance facilities. These measures will improve the ease of administration and clarity in the Zoning Bylaw while addressing sustainable transportation and accessibility objectives, policies and actions arising from the Master Transportation Plan, Council’s Strategic Priorities Plan and Climate Emergency Response. The Bylaw applies city-wide.
HOW DO I GET MORE INFORMATION?
From June 1 to June 12, 2023, the proposed bylaw and related material are available for inspection at Legislative Services, City Hall 8:30 am to 4:30 pm Monday to Friday, and online at www.newwestcity.ca/publicnotices.
